In Day 1, we covered ballhandling, we worked on catching and scoring with Oiler Drills, and we learned the C-Rip Series. We learned how and why to KOB (Keep on Body or Keep on Back) when driving past the defender. Lastly, we worked on drawing fouls by using fakes.
We applied each of the skills learned with two different 1-on-1 games.
- 1-on-1 Face Up: Athletes had to use the C-Rip Series to get by the defense.
- 1-on-1 From The Elbow: Athletes had to work on KOB-ing and drawing fouls by landing on two feet and using an Arrum
- Techniques used to control TIME and SPACE and make effective decision CONSISTENTLY.
- Huppppy –> Two foot stop
- Tough Position –> A Power Pivot against pressure defense to create space
- Grab N Peek –> Player must square up and peek at the rim on EVERY CATCH
VISUAL: What Control Looks Like
Take note of Kevin Durant:
- He is Peeking at The Rim
- He has landed in the paint on a two foot stop
- He is Powerful with knees bent, ready to take a hit.

FACE UP GAME
Techniques used to MOVE a defender is in the offensive player’s bubble effectively
- C-Rip Series: Jab step series that incorporates a rip thru with a jab step with your shooting foot.
- C Rip N Go –> When the defense does not move back on the jab step
- C Rip N Cross –> When the defense CHESTS the initial jab step and opens up the crossover step
- C Rip N Shot –> When the defense hops back and the offense shoots (because they are in their scoring range)
Techniques used to DRIVE the basketball effectively
- Foot To Foot
- Chest & Shoulder Read
- If the defender’s CHEST is on the LINE OF ATTACK, then you must perform a DIRECTION CHANGE.
- If the defender’s SHOULDER or hip is on the LINE OF ATTACK, then you must continue straight ahead and KOB.
- KOB –> Keep on Body or Keep on Back when driving
Techniques used to finish in the paint effectively
- Ball Body Man
- Used when the defense is to the side of you or behind you
- D-Rose–> Directional Jump Stop
- Used to split defenders or as a direction change when their is SPACE between you and a basket defender.
- Big Al–> Up and under or step through move
- Used when there is no space between you and a basket defender
Techniques to help you draw fouls effectively
- What’s Up Fakes
- Ball to the Chin
- Eyes to the Rim
- Drop The Fin
- Using a What’s Up Fake to get the defense up in the air
- Go up through the nostrils when the defense is on the way down
